My mission is to help stressed-out business owners rediscover their joy.

My Experience

I founded the bookstore Fiction Addiction in Greenville, SC in 2001 and have managed it ever since. I've grown it from a used bookstore employing just myself to a store stocking over $100,000 in new book inventory and a staff of four.

How Can I Relieve Your Stress and Help You Recover Your Joy?

My goal is to transition entrepreneurs  -- whether you have employees or not -- from working "in" your business, to working "on" your business. I believe small business ownership can and should:

  • be a joyous activity, not a stressful one

  • give you the freedom to craft a work schedule around your personal life, rather than the other way around

  • be a stable platform you can build on to achieve financial security for yourself and your family.

To do this, you will need to develop great systems for your business. And I'm a systems nerd! There's nothing I like more than creating, implementing, and tweaking systems.
